Aashish is Exposed!

Like many others, we’ve covered the story that did the rounds recently concerning the alleged legal proceedings in India so that 8 year old Aashish Nanak from Chandigarh could claim his 22,912,500.38 Indian Rupees ($500,000 dollars!)  winnings from playing an online poker game.  And we smelt a slight odour of rat from the start!

The idea that an eight year old could bypass the strict protocols on any online gambling site was very unlikely.  It’s certainly not possible to do without eventually being rumbled at www.raketherake.com or any number of the poker sites we recommend.  While the story does have the romance of a “slumpuppy millionaire“ theme to it, like most other fairy tales it’s simply not true.

RakeTheRake has done some detective work and although we can’t gather everyone in the smoking room while we expose the culprit, we can at least categorically state that Aashish and the entire story appears to be the figment of someone’s very fertile imagination.  He’s not even Indian!  The image accompanying the story appears to have originally come from   http://dannycasler.wordpress.com and is in fact a Guatemalan kid using a beat up old keyboard as a toy. The Internet is fantastic, but always surf without entirely suspending your disbelief and just because it’s in print or on screen doesn’t mean it’s necessarily true.

What is beyond doubt is the fact that www.raketherake.com insists our partners adhere to the very highest professional and ethical standards.  They do not actively target or accept any persons who are less than 18 years of age (or a higher age that may apply in the respective jurisdiction) regardless of the local age of majority.  We here at RakeTheRake also do our best to actively encourage responsible gaming. It’s important to remember that you’re buying fun, not investing your money.  Set strict limits on how much time and money you’re going to spend, quit while you’re ahead, never chase losses and only gamble with money you can afford to lose – don’t put your livelihood or family at risk.
